One I’ve bumped into occasionally is that having is somehow inferior to having a person working for you “properly”… I can see how clients move onto needing a full time employee but it is often not a good reason to get rid of the VA as it’s super unusual to find all of our skills in one person - or at least a person with enough time to be able to do it all for you at reasonable cost!
